In case you host multiple Internet sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, since getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an innovative security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all web hosting packages, so you can protect all of your websites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default to prevent disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really effortless. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we can restore it to its original state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host multiple sites, you'll be able to isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to control and shield all your websites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged site very quickly because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
